Zeenews Sports Bureau
New Delhi: The International Cycling Union (UCI) has dissolved its independent commission that was probing the high profile Lance Armstrong doping scandal citing loss of confidence as the reason.
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the United States Doping Agency (USADA) had refused to cooperate with the commission.
UCI president Pat McQuaid said that they after speaking to president of WADA, he had no choice but to shut it down as the latter had offered assistance in establishing another commission to continue with the investigations.
“Over the weekend I spoke to John Fahey, president of WADA," McQuaid said in a statement on Monday.
"He confirmed WADA`s willingness to help the UCI establish a truth and reconciliation commission (TRC), as well as saying that WADA had no confidence in the existing independent commission process...We have therefore decided to disband the independent commission with immediate effect," he said.
